So last month you may have seen that a new sweet shop opened in my town which has inspired me to do monthly American Candy hauls! If you fancy a read of last months, check it out here. This month I purchased some Mint M&Ms (which I totally didn’t know were a thing?!) Butterfinger bites, Jolly Rancher chews, Cookie Dough bites and Reese’s peanut butter cups. I thought the same as last month I would say a little about each item and rate them for you guys. Let me know what I should buy next month in the comments!
These are beyond amazing, honestly my new favourite thing on the planet and I would happily buy
like 50 packets if I had the money and they wouldn’t make me the size of a house. I love anything mint flavoured and I love chocolate so these are the perfect candy for me. I am drawn in by the packaging too as it’s a bright green and stands out from the rest.
Jolly Rancher Chews
I have actually tried Jolly Ranchers in a different form when I was in the states and loved them! When I saw they do chews I had to try them. To me they remind me of Fruitella’s or chewits, but as these are tropical flavour it’s just a tropical flavour instead. Although noone I live with likes the pineapple ones, the others went down pretty well my favourite being any of the pink ones. Although I think I prefer the original ones, as chewy sweets aren’t my favourite.
Cookie Dough Bites
Last time I had the red velvet ones, which were beyond gross! This time I decided that I would try the cookie dough ones, I love cookie dough usually so it’s a good test for me. When I tried these I just thought they tasted like chocolate, I couldn’t taste any cookie dough and was disappointed again. Although they weren’t as bad as the red velvet ones, I wouldn’t buy them again.
These were one of the things which were recommended to me to try, so I did. I’d like to say I am not a fan at all in fact I hated them, I am not sure exactly what they are supposed to be but they just taste like nuts wrapped in chocolate and I hate nuts so these were not for me. My boyfriend and my house mate actually said they were okay, so none of us loved them.
Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups
You can actually get these a lot more in the UK than what you could a few years ago, another thing I am not really a fan of but my boyfriend loved them so I think it’s just me. To me they have the same consistency as caramel but just taste like peanut butter, which is obviously what they are. I enjoyed the chocolate itself just not the filling.
